I am a Colombian immigrant and political activist. I am a computer engineer who worked in tech for over 11 years before leaving the corporate world.
My passion is helping other people understand what is going on in the world of politics. I want them to feel less overwhelmed, and encourage them to become more involved and vote.
I love showing people why it’s so important that we pay attention to what’s happening in politics. One of my favorite things is breaking down complex political topics. I’ve made videos about the filibuster, gerrymandering, how to vote by mail, and how to fill out the census, among others.
I’ve trained people on how to write letters to voters with Vote Forward and every election I participate in “The Big Send” myself. In 2020, volunteers across the country wrote over 17 million letters to voters in 21 states.
In February of 2020, Telemundo featured my efforts in educating the Latino community in the U.S. and encouraging all citizens to vote.
Latinos are the largest minority in the United States, but from 1996 until 2016, our voter turnout was below 50%.
Thanks to the work of many grassroots organizations, that number is starting to change!
Unfortunately, part of the issue is that nobody is talking to our community. 55% of Latinos surveyed before the 2018 midterms, said that they had not been contacted by any political campaign.
I want people to be better informed about what is happening in our country and how this affects them. I want people to get involved, and I want to inspire people to run for office. Unfortunately, we make up only about 1.5% of elected officials, but we are approximately 18% of the US population.
I am determined to change Latino representation in politics and media. That’s why I feel honored to work with organizations like Lunario, working on educating the Latino community in the U.S.
